In dense populations, roof rats will establish a social hierarchy, wherein dominant males mate more than subordinate males. The food habits of roof rats outdoors in some respects resemble those of tree squirrels, since they prefer a wide variety of fruit and nuts. Females can breed year-round. In some situations in which the rats have been eliminated, cats that are good hunters may prevent reinfestation. These rats are primarily active at night. In controlling roof rats with rodenticides, a sharp distinction must be made between control in and around buildings and control away from buildings such as in landfills and dumps, along drainage ditches and streams, in sewer water evaporation ponds, and in parks. Bubonic plague was a scourge in Europe several times throughout history. It is found in every state.

Then, when in the attic, wear a respirator - you don't want to breathe in fiberglass insulation, dust or mold, or the variety of diseases associated with rats. Only construction grade materials are used. While rats can live in the walls, the kitchen, under the house, etc. the most common place for rats to inhabit in a house is the attic. Rat guards are not without problems, however, because they may fray the insulation and cause short circuits. Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist. Trapping is the preferred method of indoor control. Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences.

High-frequency sound-producing devices are advertised for frightening rats, but almost no research exists on their effects specifically on roof rats. Our professional wildlife professionals may not show you how to kill the rats but instead use rat repellents, rat fumigants and rat trapping systems to ensure the effectiveness of the rat control method, without physically harming the rats. Another important treatment component is customer education so the customer understands the concepts of the proposed control program.
